Say what you will about the probably-not-very-authentic Mexican restaurants of the world, they have the right idea when it comes to chips and salsa: unlimited. Ten times out of ten, I fill up on salty tortilla chips and salsa of varying quality before receiving my personal sizzling fajita griddle. I swear I’ll reform every time, but salsa is just one of those things that disappears.

Thankfully, salsa is stupidly easy to make. Whether you’re hosting a summer get-together or simply inhaling chips and dip at a Netflix party of one, we have 13 recipes—plus some amazing salsa-filled dishes—to keep you refilling that bowl.
